Corey Walsh Comes Out as Gay

Certified badass and all-around great guy Corey Walsh took to social media this morning to reveal that he is gay - 

"If you were to tell me a year ago that today was going to be the day where I said fuck it and let the world in on my personal life I would have told you that’s never going to happen. But thanks to the support of my family, friends, and sponsors I can finally accept the fact that I am gay and be open about it. Trust me, I’m not the person who wants to let people in on my personal life and in a perfect world I would not have to. But the reality is there are a lot of people still struggling with the same situations and I just wanted to let people know that they are not alone. I feel like the world is shifting into a more understanding place and now is the time to open up the conversation within our communities every chance we get. So here we are."

Congratulations to Corey on putting this out there. This is sure to have a huge impact on the BMX community and help many riders living in similar situations.

You rule, Corey!
